It’s gotten to that point in the year were even the things you used to enjoy seem to be strenuous tasks.  I feel like I’m not alone when I say I’m experiencing end of the year burnout.  I’m not taking care of myself as much as a should and my work is taking longer and longer to complete.  Self care?  Have you seen her, cause I sure haven’t.  I’ve been suffering from a stubborn case of pneumonia so that sure hasn’t helped my energy levels. 

I know I’m supposed to offer something but this is for myself too.

  • Wash your hair
  • Stop isolating yourself
  • Vent to people who care
  • Take breaks
  • Listen to music
  • Watch your comfort videos
  • Snuggle your stuffed animals
  • Refrain from throwing hands with that person who keeps pissing you off
  • Eat food
  • Hang out with your friends
  • Leave the school once in a while (Or your house)
  • Sit with someone during meals

Hopefully this is helpful to anyone else suffering a burnout.  You can do it, I believe in you!

One thought on “Burnout”

  1. Lillian, I’m so glad you posted about this! Burnout is so common for students and artists, but we can push through this. The actions you offered are excellent recommendations, so thank you for sharing!
